been using xp pro x64 without a hitch for a long while. Using a skinner you can make it look like anything, vista, seven or whatever.
It way fast, still have it on disk.

Same here (re W7 being really great & far better than XP). XP was great in its day, but it's like a Model T Ford compared to a 2009 model car. Well that's a slight exaggeration, but W7 is very far advanced beyond XP without question and it's not just the GUI, although that is a part of it.

So many things, I wouldn't know where to start, except to say try reading the W7 Engineering Blog to get some idea.

I can't lie,Win7 looks good but on a old pc like mine i don't think will work too well as xp!

There's just no contest at all in speed on my hardware. With 7 i can still see the redraw of the windows flashing by as the background wallpaper updates.
With xp it's just: plop it's there.

7 idling at avg 10% with all utils running.
xp barely touches 3%

BSOD's, weird crashes, thats was all but gone in xp. With 7 a whole new range of problems has been introduced.

Still i switched to 7 because there are a few minor touches which mean at lot to me which have been resolved.

But i see the need to upgrade my memory, it only gets 8600 kb/s

i think pointless to say more. And for me as well, win7 runs better on my old AthlonXP2000+ with 1gb of ram and GF 6200 then WinXP.

benchmarks tests if your computer runs a benchmark well, thats all. It has no meaning in real life.
